Welcome to a whole new way of life.
Actor, activist, always on-the-go, Ashley found herself later in life turning to her inner circle of friends and family in times of menstrual discomfort.
When coming off hormonal birth control, Ashley opened up to her sister-in-law-turned-co-founder Olivia, to work through ways she could be more in control of her body’s feelings. Ashley was determined to find a clearer, cleaner path to hormonal harmony.
Health - specifically menstrual wellbeing - was no longer a one-sided conversation, no longer a taboo topic, no longer a frustrating din clouding her life.
Instead the hum of hormonal harmony. Shared feelings and learnings as a group. And like that, Hummingway started to take flight.
“Get-up-and-go isn’t always the right medicine, yet over the years we’ve been conditioned to power through. We need to listen to our bodies and hormones.”
Growing up with a well-versed naturopath for a mom, Olivia was schooled in the holistic ways of the world.
Empowered with this knowledge, while penning tips and suggestions to Ashley who was living life on-the-go, Olivia imagined a space dedicated to presenting the whole picture, particularly after being diagnosed with PMDD. Olivia saw an opportunity to share products and original thought on periods and hormones on a broader platform.
The duo knew they could multiply their learnings exponentially, by creating a judgement-free, accessible space for everyone experiencing these common feelings. Plus products that empower people to take health into their own hands. Doing things the Hummingway.
“We’re not here to put flowers and rainbows around your period. We’re here to make change and provide action that actually works.”
Support comes from a cast of inspiring minds across medicine, wellness and science who bring an informed, diverse body of thought to a subject that’s only been half-told. Up until now.
